My new bike

I picked up my new motorcycle last Friday, a 2010 Kawasaki Z1000. In all likelihood I will be selling the Falcon to a friend. With all I have going on there's no room in the stable for two. The end of an era I suppose...

Hmmm, better handling, better power, better brakes, 30 years newer...I think there might be something to that trade. I love the XS, but if all things were free...
